Courting Cate By Leslie Gould Giveaway!

#1 Bestselling Author Leslie Gould Delivers a New Amish Romance Series

When Amish farmer Pete Treger moves to Paradise Township, Pennsylvania, seeking a better life, he meets sisters Cate and Betsy Miller. Both are beautiful, but older sister Cate is known more for her sharp tongue and fiery temper than her striking appearance. Betsy, on the other hand, is sweet and flirty--and seems to have attracted most of the bachelors in Lancaster County!

However, the sisters' wealthy father has made one hard and fast rule: elder sister must marry first, before the younger can even start courting. Unfortunately for poor Betsy, and for the men who want to court her, her older sister, Cate, doesn't have any suitors--until Pete comes to town, that is.

Though he finds both sisters attractive, something about Cate's feisty demeanor appeals to him. Soon the other bachelors in the district convince Pete to court Cate. She hardly seems receptive to his overtures, though. Instead, she's immediately suspicious of his interest.

From page one I fell in love with this book. Cate loved to read more then anything in life, she sounds just like me. Cate found a man after her own heart he loved to read as much as she did. Author Leslie Gould does not need a to coauthor any more books. She is on fantasic author on her own. She wrote Courting Cate as if she were Amish herself.
I enjoyed this book so much. I can't wait for book number two in The Courtships of Lancaster County series.
